Download: https://github.com/ayufan-pine64/android-6.0/releases

It takes about 10 minutes for first boot to finish.

Report all issues here: https://github.com/ayufan-pine64/android-6.0/issues

What does work?

It seems to work nicely and be more responsive then 7.0 build.

Widevine DRM L3 does work, so you should be able to use Netflix.

It also allows you to update SuperSU binary, so rooting is OK too.

What does not?

- So far it seems to be OK.

This is alpha build, so do not complain Smile

If something doesn't work:
- try to see logs (adb logcat, adb shell dmesg),
- try to compile and fix it by yourself,
- when you find solution create a Pull Request for one of this repositories: https://github.com/ayufan-pine64/

How to compile?

https://github.com/ayufan-pine64/local_m...arshmallow

You can also see my Jenkins compilation script:
https://github.com/ayufan-pine64/android...enkinsfile

Download:

https://github.com/ayufan-pine64/android-6.0/releases

Install:

The builds are designed to be used with Pine A64 1GB or 2GB on at least 4GB sdcard.

Use Etcher to write images: https://www.etcher.io/

The build automatically resize data partition on first boot to use sdcard space.

LCD:

To enable LCD, edit uEnv.txt from BOOT partition and uncomment:
Code:
pine64_lcd=on

HDMI resolution:

Edit uEnv.txt and select one. You can find all supported in uEnv.txt:

Code:
disp_mode=1080p60

Ethernet speed:

Edit uEnv.txt and select desired speed, by default it uses auto-negotiation.
For example to limit to 100Mbps:

Code:
eth0_speed=100

Google Apps:

Android Regular and TV already has Google Apps installed.

Pine64_lcd=on is not present in uEnv.txt file, Please guide how to turn ON LCD settings.

It seems like PINE64 LCD doesn't work in this release.
When LCD is enabled:

disp_screen0=lcd
disp_mode=screen0

kernel stucks in LCD initialization
Enabling different resolutions in uEnv.txt doesn't help.

I will need to get LCD working in a couple of weeks for a project. Did you ever get LCD to work with A6 ? Did you try just pasting Pine64_lcd=on into uEnv..txt ?

To get audio out working I need to unplug / plug jack wire every time pine64 is started.

Is there a way to get jack audio out working every time without plug/unplug ?

Hi, I have installed android-6.0-pine-a64-tv-v1.3.0-r34 and Youtube will not launch ("Youtube has stopped working").
I have not changed any settings. I use Ethernet, a 16GB sd card, on a full hd tv through HDMI.
I have signed into a google account as well. Play store works, so does Kodi, but youtube does not. Any ideas?

Dear Ayufan
I've installed on my Pine 64+ (2Gb) your latest Android 6.0.1 release and it works beautifully.
I've solved the audio routing problem using the free version of SoundAbout from Playstore, for using microphone and sound output from/to the audio jack on boot.
Also my chalk-elec touchscreen monitor works fine with it, multitouch driver recognize the monitor and it functions well.
Only, the monitor has 1280x800 16:10 resolution, but Android use the 1280x720 16:9 resolution (set by uEnv.txt) and images on screen are slightly vertically stretched.
It would be fantastic if it can be set to output 1280x800. There is any chance to obtain the native monitor resolution of 1280x800?

Thank you for your precious work!

I've solved the audio routing problem on boot using the free version of the SoundAbout app from Play Store.
It works fine, the audio routing is forced on boot without the unplug/plug cycle.

Anyone able to get VPN to work at all?

Neither OpenVPN or my VPN provider's app can connect.

(sorry no log, not near device and just signed up for forum so thought i'd throw it out there)

I'm using the October 2017 build.
